We envision a community in which older adults are valued for the wisdom and experience they possess, and for the contributions they have made and continue to make. We are proud to offer programs and services that encourage active older adults to engage in intrinsically meaningful activities; that support adult children of aging parents; and, that enable those older adults challenged by disability, illness or declining health to live in comfort and dignity.
Our Family Caregiver Support Program supports unpaid family and community caregivers of all backgrounds in King County with TCARE, an evidence-based tool designed to reduce caregiver stress. We work with caregivers to create individualized care plans that can include information and referral, classes, support groups, caregiver counseling, family consultations, limited respite care and financial assistance.
Our geriatric care managers assist low-income, older adults with health and mental health care navigation, benefits assistance, housing advocacy, social supports (including volunteer companion services) and basic needs assistance.
Care Coordination & Financial Assistance for Nazi Victims
We provide on-going case management and financial assistance to qualified Holocaust survivors. Limited assistance with home care is also available. Social services for Nazi victims are supported by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.
